NYTimes on MCE

The New York Times has an interesting article (free subscription required) on Microsoft's Media Center Edition, including many of the reasons why it hasn't been adopted more in the home. While Microsoft claims an impressive 3% of computers come with MCE installed, the majority don't even realize it when they buy it and few ever hook it up to their television.

Microsoft is resting some of its hope on Microsoft Center Extender, which MS has licensed to Linksys and HP among others. It still will be pricey (the article claims an initial $250 street price), so we'll have to see how well it it pays off.
